    No... The garage type. Any one have recommendations? My storage unit is tight tight, I'd love to ride in and not struggle with center stand.

    I have always used Pit Bull stuff. At first, it can be a little fiddly trying to hold up the bike, while sliding the pin into the rear axle. I removed the center stand on my 6g, but kept the left side grab rail so I wasn't grabbing and pulling on the rear cowl.

    My neighbor has 3 of these mounted in his enclosed trailer. My buddy has two of these, one on his lift and one in his shed. He can ride up and in and get off. I was VERY surprised how steady the bike is.

    Obviously not any kind of maintenance stand, but it is AWESOME to then install a rear wheel stand with no worries about a balancing act, perfect for a tight space. I'm now kinda bummed I sold one mounted to a lift I sold to that buddy. Think I'm gonna have to get another one.

    I own a couple of Condor chocks, and a Harbor Freight chock, that works in a similar fashion.

    While the Condor is much more expensive, the HF chock actually does the job about as well.
    I have one, the HF chock, mounted on my motorcycle lift table. It will hold a Harely Street
    Glide stable enough to not be overly worried about it falling over. To be honest, I was very
    surprised at how well it works.

    With a 20% coupon, you can get them for less than $35. One heck of a deal IMO.

    I have a Harbor Freight chock mounted to a trailer. It works fine although it is not easiest thing to get the bike off the chock. Easy to put on.

    These are the best especially in tight spots

    I have HF chocks on my trailers... slip a 1/2" piece of plywood under the pivoting part so it's easier to get off.
    There is another (expensive) type of chock (Baxley??) that squeezes in on the front tire as you finally get in it... holds the bike all by itself no problem at all...
    Then there's the Abba stand if that's your thing... looks rather handy. There is a more expensive version you can jack your bike up with.

    Was looking at Harbor Freight, looks like it would fit the bill. Condor is nice but $ vs my useage. I figured getting off it is a chore but since I'm a 1 person operation 99% of the time I'm kinda used to a few groin strains!
